B'nei Noah[edit]

I will be working on the B'nei Noah article soon. Keep watch. Chavatshimshon 06:42, 3 December 2006 (UTC)

"Elfdalian"[edit]

The move from Älvdalsmål to Elfdalian was made without a discussion. Whoever made the move should explain it on Talk:Elfdalian. I would really recommend that you don't lend your account to other people in the future. At least not if they're not going to support or properly explain their edits. Peter Isotalo 11:50, 7 January 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for your personal advice. You are stating the obvious. However, I don't see I can do anything else now than reserving myself from edits made in my name. Reverting those contributions is not an option as I see it, since, after all, they added extensive information to the article. I don't want to enter into a discussion about the move of the article but I suggest you pose your critique on Talk:Elfdalian. --Sasper 16:21, 7 January 2007 (UTC)
You should encourage your friend to reveal his identity, then. Otherwise it might easily seem as some kind of unwholesome attempt at sock puppetry.
Peter Isotalo 19:47, 7 January 2007 (UTC)
I am not really sure what the very exact definition of sock puppetry is, but if you mean I could have written the article myself, but I don't want to admit it, I can only repeat what I have stated, that it is not the case. I don't have the specific knowledge about Elfdalian/Älvdalsmål that would make me able to write such an article. I don't really see either what motive I could have for writing something and then denying it. I neither distance myself from what he has written, nor do I endorse it, I just say I am not responsible. You may regard the contributions as coming from an unsigned user.--Sasper 20:14, 7 January 2007 (UTC)
May it be XXX himself whom you are an "agent" for, Sasper?
Jens Persson (213.67.64.22 14:34, 20 January 2007 (UTC)

I am not an agent for anybody; as I have stated, I haven't written the contributions of 31 December 2006 and 1 January 2007. --Sasper 05:00, 21 January 2007 (UTC)

New Alliance[edit]

Hej Casper
Jeg har fjernet din edit fra Ny alliance siden, som du sikkert har fundet ud af, så er det en "and" i Politikken.
Mads Angelbo Talk / Contribs 07:09, 29 May 2007 (UTC)

Yes, the story about Eyvind Vesselbo's party switch turned out to be untrue, but the circumstances are still interesting so I added an update to the New Alliance article. --Sasper 18:13, 29 May 2007 (UTC)

Danish regions[edit]

Hi Casper

I've taken the liberty of undoing your two page moves regarding the two Jutlandic regions. The "of"-construction just sounds a bit strange to me in this context, compared to the similar material for other countries (I am aware that Nordjyllands Amt used that construction on its English webpage, but still). It might be more English to swap the two parts of the name, e.g. X Region rather than Region X but I'm not completely sure. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find any English renderings of the names of the new regions. Have you had any such luck? Valentinian T / C 11:05, 21 June 2007 (UTC)

As a non-native English speaker, I can't claim the last say on this. But I still think "Region North Jutland" and "Region South Jutland" sound odd without the "of". Currently only two regions seem to have an english version of their official website, and they call themselves Region Sealand and The Capital Region of Denmark respectively. "Capital Region" is a common compound in English, formed by an an adjective + a noun, so that seems OK. I wouldn't rely on just what the regions happen to call themselves in English because that might not be the correct usage nor an official title. But I'll look out for how official state bodies translate the names. It is complicated by the fact that the Danish names are actually not compliant with good language or traditional name custom. Constructions like Area North, Sector 3, Centre East, Region Sealand used to be used only in army and business management language, and much less so than in German and English. Then they slid into the language of bureaucrats, but it is the first time they have been turned into official names of public bodies. --Sasper 17:29, 21 June 2007 (UTC)
I agree, the Danish names are horrible as well. Btw, it is "Southern Denmark", rather than "South Jutland". I guess "Capital Region (Denmark)" could work. I'm surprised by the other translation, though, as Zealand is normally written with a "Z". I'll keep looking as well. Tobias Conradi suggested switching the word order to e.g. "Sjælland Region" or "Zealand Region". Valentinian T / C 18:29, 21 June 2007 (UTC)
Btw, nice work on your article on the Gedser-Rostock bridge. Have you seen that a bridge between Bøjden and Fynshav was recently suggested as a rival to an Århus-Samsø-Kalundborg third Little Belt bridge? Valentinian T / C 15:08, 21 June 2007 (UTC)
Thanks. Yes, a dizzying lot of bridges have been proposed during the last months. Now there are not so many motorways left to suggest any more. --Sasper 17:29, 21 June 2007 (UTC
Thisted, Holstebro, Viborg, Tønder, Næstved, and Kalundborg probably disagree. :) Anyway, it will still take ages to fix the rail network and to expand all the those motorways that were originally planned as with three lanes either way but only built with two. Valentinian T / C 18:29, 21 June 2007 (UTC)

Gedser-Rostock bridge[edit]

Hi Casper

I don't completely understand the sentence that it would be the first bridge spanning an unnamed waterway. Aren't these waters named "Kadetrenden" in Danish or is my memory just faulty :) ? Happy editing. Valentinian T / C 07:14, 21 July 2007 (UTC)

As far as I know, Kadetrenden is not the name of the strait between Falster and Germany, but rather the name of the east-west fairway in the middle of that strait where waters are deep enough for ships to sail. Similar to Øresund, which has Flinterenden, Drogden (and maybe even more fairways). Also, marine names such as Kadetrenden are not really used by the wider public. --Sasper 20:40, 21 July 2007 (UTC)
Ok, sounds sensible. But isn't the entire area simply part of the Bay of Mecklenburg? Valentinian T / C 19:54, 23 July 2007 (UTC)
Many bodies of water lack an clear, traditional definition. I would assume the Bay of Mecklenburg only covers the German side, not the Danish one. Also, the core of the Bay of Mecklenburg is a bit further west. The fact that the Danish media presented the proposal as a "bridge from Gedser to Rostock" already hints that there is no evident name for that body of water. --Sasper 23:14, 23 July 2007 (UTC)

Dunst (queer network in Copenhagen)[edit]

I'm really curious as to your reason for moving "Dunst (television)" to "Dunst (queer network in Copenhagen)". Have you read how the naming conventions work? Specifically, I think Wikipedia:Naming conventions (people)#Qualifier between bracketing parentheses fits for this article. Even more specifically, I believe your parenthetical for the title of the article is waaaay overboard. Thoughts? -- SatyrTN (talk / contribs) 02:12, 10 February 2008 (UTC)

See Talk:Dunst (queer network in Copenhagen). --Sasper (talk) 14:45, 10 February 2008 (UTC)
ROTFL! Is that how the faerie article comes across!?!? I'm going to have to address that - laughter, chaos and sarcasm are rampant in the Faerie community :) [http:www.radfae.org radfae.org] is another place to check out - or eurofaerie.eu. Thanks for your help on the Dunst article :) -- SatyrTN (talk / contribs) 19:02, 10 February 2008 (UTC)

Øresund[edit]

Relating to your post to Talk:Øresund regarding the name of the article (that Oresund is not a correct or popular spelling), I have moved the article from Oresund to Øresund. I took "Øresund" to be more appropriate than the Swedish spelling "Öresund" because there seems to be greater precedent for the Danish spelling and because Øresund is in the Danish Straits. If you have any comments, either contact me on my talk page, or post to Talk:Øresund. Thanks, Oldak Quill 14:13, 16 March 2008 (UTC)

The Alcat Test[edit]

Hey! Good job on the The Alcat Test article! You mentioned some points of view that I did not cover at all. I typed out the article as I watched the programme, so I kept the memory of the subject as clear as possible, yet I managed to forget some very important aspects. Thanks for clearing it up!

Paul Belien[edit]

Hi, Just a note to apologize about my interfering with your editing on Paul Beliën. I read the article, noticed the OR and decided to remove it. It's only after I did the edit that I noticed you were actively editing at the same moment. (I do stand by my decision to remove the paragraphs though.) --Luxem (talk) 08:19, 26 August 2008 (UTC)

Saxo Bank[edit]

[Moved to Talk:Saxo_Bank#Saxo_Bank]

re[edit]

Hey Sasper. I think it might be best to get other editors involved with this issue, probably the best thing to do is get a Wikipedia:Third Opinion (or WP:RFC if necessary) and just settle it for good. Ostap 01:26, 21 July 2009 (UTC)

Team Europe[edit]

Hi Casper, I removed your disambiguation link on 'Team Europe' as the organisation you linked is TEAM not TEAM Europe. The denomination 'Team Europe' is neither on the page you linked, nor on the main webpage of the organisation. It is only present in the internet address of the organisation. If you really think that there is a need for a disambiguation, I suggest that you create a specific page instead of inserting this link on the top of the page.

Slimane Hadj Abderrahmane[edit]

Good point. I was not following carefully and was under the impression that the article discussed charges he was facing in the US. Thanks, --brewcrewer (yada, yada) 19:20, 13 July 2010 (UTC)

No problem. I also needed to read the article carefully to be sure about that detail. --Sasper (talk) 21:14, 13 July 2010 (UTC)

Vorupør[edit]

Hej Sasper, tak for de nye artikel, men skal den ikke flyttes til "Nørre Vorupør" som på da, de og nl.wiki? De728631 (talk) 15:04, 13 March 2011 (UTC)

No, on the contrary, I think the other ones should be moved to "Vorupør". The village is locally always known as Vorupør. You only specify Nørre or Sønder when you specifically talk about the northern or southern part. The parish is Vorupør Sogn, and the church is Vorupør Kirke. The history and institutions of the village are all connected with Vorupør as a whole, not "Nørrre Vorupør". But non-locals usually don't know that. The usage of "Nørre Vorupør" can be said to be hypercorrect, unless you specifically wish to exclude the southern village. --Sasper (talk) 15:11, 13 March 2011 (UTC)
Ah, alright. Let's leave it at Vorupør then. De728631 (talk) 15:22, 13 March 2011 (UTC)
